Siemens to base its Dubai operations at District 2020

District 2020District 2020 has announced that one of its tenants, Siemens, will grow its presence within its innovation ecosystem and future-proof community - which is set to evolve from Expo 2020 Dubai – following the signing of a 10-year lease agreement for two buildings.

The agreement will see the German company establish its Dubai operations at District 2020 from mid-2021, after the close of Expo 2020 Dubai.

The lease agreement outlines the establishment of different divisions of Siemens’ business group at District 2020, including the soon to be spun off Siemens Energy. The announcement follows Siemens’ 2017 commitment to establish a global headquarters for its airports, cargo, and port logistics business in District 2020.

The circa 11,000 sq m office space will be among the most technologically advanced in the UAE and will serve as a base in Dubai for Siemens and the newly independent Siemens Energy.

The two office buildings will inherit the building technologies installed by Siemens for Expo 2020 Dubai. This includes the smart sensors from Enlighted, a Siemens IoT solutions provider.

The IoT platform creates ‘sensory systems’ throughout the building, providing real-time data and analytics into how the building is being used. Siemens will also implement its digital building management system Desigo CC, and its cloud-based energy analytics platform Navigator which will connect 137 buildings across the site.
